Hi, it’s good to be with you again. I’m Maggie Lukowski of Maggie Moon Tarot and here are the Tarot and Astrology vibes for the week! This is the week where it feels like we get an extra time because we’ve turn our clocks back one hour, as Daylight Savings Time ended here in the US. And we also have a few more days to plant any seeds for our intentions since the energy of a New Moon lasts for 10 afterwards! So it’s not to late to squeeze in something else. And it’s a busy week in the heavens with Mars, Mercury and Venus changing signs. Our week starts with the Moon in Aquarius which is a sign of innovation and change. The Moon speaks to us our our feelings and with Aquarius it can be about the collective, and unexpected things as this sign’s ruler is Uranus. Aquarius can help us be a bit more detached and less reactive to drama and hopefully looking at the big picture.
This week I’m reading with the mystical Beautiful Creatures Tarot by J.r. Rivera and the beautiful art by Jasmine Becket-Griffith published by Schiffer Publishing. The cards can be read using reversals. Some of the Major Arcana cards are named differently. The Court cards, Pages are Elements, Knights, Queens, and Kings are represented by Signs of the Zodiac. Notice the eyes in each card, they are so expressive and mesmerizing. The eyes are the windows to the soul. In this deck, there are also two Bonus cards. One of the extras is You Are the One and can also be used as a significator in a spread if you choose to use significators or read with other cards with it’s own meaning. So let’s take a look at what the week’s energy holds!
At the beginning of the week, Fortitude, the Goddess Durga the Goddess of Manifestation key card 8 in the Major Arcana traditionally Strength comes out from the Beautiful Creatures Tarot. It’s a reminder to start our week with fortitude and strength. In the dictionary fortitude is mental and emotional strength in facing difficulty, adversity, danger, or temptation courageously. The Hindu goddess Durga is pictured with her Tiger. She is our warrior and reminds us we have the strength to overcome any of our fears or the unknown. We see the six hands of Durga holding the pink lotuses and the Sudarshan Chakra, the conch shell atop her baton symbolizing the cosmic sound of the OM vibration which removes negative energy and restores peace along with the trident, and sword to cut or break away from danger or fear.
The Tiger sitting next to her offers us her medicine of passion, sensuality, willpower, courage and being the creator of our life and everything in it. Fear can be useful when we are in physical danger but it’s not so useful in our day to day activities. Fears, self-doubt, and worry keep us stuck and unable to move forward and keep us in scarcity and lack consciousness They also can cause us to be unwell by negative beliefs and thoughts that affect our mind, body, and soul. Fear costs us from moving forward. One of the ways to move beyond fear is by quieting our mind through Meditation. It’s is a simple but oh so power tool to help us more through fear, reduce our stress and anxiety and improve our health. Our Tiger along with Durga helps us gain strength to over come our fears this week and remind us of one of our superpowers, meditation and our mind to choose courage and fortitude over fear so that we can be of service in our life.
